Aseptic loosening and failure of a tibial component are recognized problems in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA). Excessive stress on the supporting cancellous bone is thought to contribute to the loosening and failure. Of factors that could influence supporting cancellous bone stresses, we focused on the inclination of a unicompartmental tibial component by analyzing the effect of coronal plane and sagittal plane inclination. Detailed geometrically accurate, three-dimensional finite… CONTINUE READING
